New Buffalo Township Library Event Calendar
|Time:||6:30 PM - 7:30 AM|
|Title:||Author Talk: Nocturnal Admissions|
In Nocturnal Admissions, Steven Adelman chronicles an improbable journey from small town to big town, filled with a cast of characters he could never have imagined. People named Hedda Lettuce, Jenetalia and Jiggy, and the likes of Rudy Giuliani, Sir Richard Branson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bob Dylan, Snoop Dogg and other celebrities. Nocturnal Admissions illustrates how nightlife has long been a source for social change, transforming itself and us with it. Whether it be mainstream acceptance of gay culture or the genesis of Kardashian culture, pop culture has always taken its cues from nighlife, which in turn serves as a mirror reflecting the culture of that moment in time.
Presenter: Steven Adelman, born in Essexville, Mich., rose to prominence as a nightlife entrepreneur with clubs in New York and other major cities. Currently, he divides his time between Memphis and Union Pier. Much of Nocturnal Admissions was written in the New Buffalo Township Library.
